Track My Read!

Track My Read® is a new, free-to-use tool, designed to help you engage pupils in reading for pleasure. It’s really easy to set up, and enables pupils to tell you what they’re choosing to read, and for how long.

It unites a community in reading to achieve a collective target. Pupils are motivated as they get instant feedback on their reading achievements, while at the same time contributing to the school’s overall target. In addition, you will gain invaluable insights into how pupils choose to read, what they read and for how long. You can analyse their reading behaviour by year group or class, and gain evidence for pupil reports and parents’ evenings.

Read for Good will be able to analyse the anonymised results, helping us to understand what and how children are choosing to read in their spare time. In turn, we can share this information with school libraries and use it to inform the book selection for our hospital programme.

Originally designed for schools, any group, team, book club or family can use it – think of it as Strava for reading! Just enter your group’s name where it asks for School Name and you’ll have the chance to enter it manually.

This tool is particularly useful during school holidays, during lockdowns or self isolation or in conjunction with running a Readathon sponsored read.

If you have a question, or need some guidance to set up Track My Read, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page. 

This is a new tool, and we welcome your feedback. If you have any comments or questions, or ideas as to how we can improve it, please complete this short form, or drop an email to justine@readforgood.org
